(page 234) .Misfit says that he knows that his dad died because of flu. So, he was punished wrongly. He says, “I found out the crime don’t matter. You can do one thing or you can do another, kill a man, because sooner or later you’re going to forget what it was you done and just punished for it” (page 235). Here he says that weather you kill people or take tire of car you will be punished anyway and when you will be punished you will forgot what you did and will be punished for no reason.
After a car accident occurs the family crosses paths with The Misfit, who eventually kills the entire family. The grandmother reveals her hypocrisy when she pleads with The Misfit to save her life because he is a good man who would not shoot a
Everyone except the grandmother, a selfish religious old woman, agrees on Florida as their destination. She tries to persuade her family to abandon their original plans, saying that there is an escaped killer on the loose, foreshadowing events that lead to the family’s murder. The grandmother is central to the rest of the story’s plot involving an accident where the family’s car flips resulting in a confrontation with the escaped convict, The Misfit. The grandmother, pointing out The Misfit’s identity, essentially dooms herself and her entire family. As a last plea to The Misfit, the grandmother attempts to manipulate his evil motives with a transcendence of religion that fails and ultimately drives him to murder her.
Observers in the town remark how the once-beautiful Delia has lost her shine because of her abusive husband. A practical joker, Sykes scares Delia fifteen years by using her fear of snakes. Delia has come to the conclusion that she does not need Sykes nor his abuse, particularly considering it is her wages that paid for their home. Sykes is a stereotypical abusive husband. He physically and mentally abuses Delia, takes her income while failing to make his own, and has an affair on the side.
Her death caused much commotion to all the people who new her; the closer they were to her, the more they suffered. This is why the murder of Cassetti is looked at as justifiable. In Christie’s book many passengers denounced Cassetti, ”If ever a man deserved what he got, Ratchett or Cassetti is the man. I'm rejoiced at his end. Such a man wasn't fit to live!” and "I did so rejoice that that evil man was dead – that he could not any more kill or torture little children.
Bundy’s first girlfriend and true love broke up with him because she didn’t think that his live was going anywhere and he became very depressed. Bundy accepted this expectation of himself which led him to stop going to classes, drop out, and begin a horrific murder spree to help gain back his confidence. This criminological theory also says that when social bonds or relationships start going down the drain then violent behavior or deviance can begin to take place. As mentioned earlier, Bundy had a very interesting family situation that contributed to his behaviors. He was told that his grandparents were his parents and that his actual mother was his sister.
The $40,000 was conveniently left in her care to be banked, her sister is away from home for the weekend, she is already upset, and disturbed that her lover’s dismal financial state has kept him from being able to openly declare their relationship. (Hitchcock, 1960) From the start, Marian knows what she has done is wrong and during her drive towards Sam and freedom she hears voices in her head admonishing her for her actions. Marian is the girl-next-door type and these actions have taken her far off course. (Thomson, 2009 p 16) When she pulls over to sleep, that is her only escape from the reality of what she has done. It must not be a very restful sleep, as she is found at the beginning of the “suspicious officer” scene to be slumped down across the front seat of her car.
In my opinion this (Myrna’s leaving) would be a good punishment for Kenny to recognize how he lost her mother easily and how much his crime is serious for her. And I believe it would effect on his feature life. Because if Myrna didn’t leave the home, he never know how much she is upset and angry. After all he can think about his violent deeply and find
In The Hitch Hiker a young English business and family man on his way up to London picks up a hitch hiker that has a special talent. And in Genesis and Catastrophe the name just about sums it up, as a mother is in labor she explains how she has previously lost 3 children but somehow Roald Dahl complicates the story and makes the reader begin hoping the baby does not survive. All four of these stories show the weakest person to be the criminal and all the strong men and policemen are made to seem helpless and weak. Lamb to the Slaughter Mary Maloney starts out as a pregnant mother and loving wife, she is overjoyed as it looks like her life is perfect, until her husband arrives home and delivers some dreadful news that will change her whole outlook on life. She chooses to ignore it.
